WAR: Outta Saudi

This report on the U.S. military withdrawal from Saudi Arabia seems to confirm precisely what the more ambitious conservative commentators have argued all along: that the U.S. presence in the country was having an impact on domestic Saudi politics, and a bad effect at that because the military presence supported inertia in favor of the status quo. In the end, better to leave the Saudis to stew in their own juices - it's the only way the regime will gain enough sense of responsibility to start dealing with domestic conditions.
